He Likes It! Hey Leo!

I've said many times that Leo does not like any kind of cat treats and openly despises all human food. There is nothing that tempts him. Not bacon, not ham, not chicken. Not Temptations, not Party Mix, not any flavor, not any time. Not green eggs and ham either, in case you were wondering! ;)

He always perks up and wants to see what Star's getting when she gets treats. But when you give him one, he looks at you like you gave him socks for Christmas. Like he's trying to figure out why you think he'd want whatever that is. Like he's doubting your mental faculties.

The ONLY things he will eat are hard cat food and canned cat food. Period. End of story. Thank you and good night.

Now that Star is getting coconut oil, he's been curious. But I'm used to him being curious and then turning his nose so I haven't worried about giving him a sniff. I just worry about getting some on Star's back and some in her mouth. Of course, she does the 'getting it in her mouth' all by herself. She loves it. She noses the jar a couple times a day to point out that I could give that to her, now, right now, if I know what's good for me.

While Star was upstairs today, I decided to give Leo a sniff to satisfy his curiosity. I expected him to sniff, give me a look of disdain, and then walk away pitying my idiocy.

He sniffed. Looked away. Then went in for another big sniff. Then he gave it a few licks!

What.. what is this sweet smell?
 


Oh my gosh, mommy actually found something tasty!


Coconut oil, who knew!

Hmmm... I told mom to read this so I can try it. I know we have some, I saw the jar. I am like Leo, except I won't eat anything besides hard food (and a little milk I steal from the daddy from time to time, yes it agrees with me!) Hey MOM!!!!!!

Katie Isabella said...

Maybe it would help my itchies? Where can I get it, Leo. Want to bring a small helping over next time you're in your tunnel? xox

D Ma said...

hey leo- i agree coconut oil is the best. but seriously dude... no interest in bacon? that's just plain crazy.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're impressed! We're not much on human food either, and now our servant is wondering if *we'd* like coconut oil. Nicki might give it a go, but probably not Derry. She can't remember if she let us try it (probably) over the months she was eating it!

Let us know if Leo still likes it in another week or so. :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Lucy will not eat any human food but Hannah loves chicken breast and has some every day. Mum's told us no coconut oil for us as she hates the smell.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

There's always one who won't be satisfied with anything - but when you care enough to watch and wait, patience will be rewarded and you'll find something that's a treat for him. But coconut oil?

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

MOL!
Maybe I should persuade my human to make me taste it too!
Enjoy, Leo!

Marilia said...

Enjoy the delicious taste!

Brian said...

We might have to try that too, it might be good for skin allergies.

Random Felines said...

oh Leo - you are so goofy :)

Meg & Quill said...

Who knew I wanna give some to the boys right now!

Photo Cache said...

he has tropical taste :)

my kittehs don't like human food either, except for canned tuna. canned cat food, sometimes, but they tire of it easily and would choose to eat the hardfood.

Wow! Reminds me of the TV Commercial with Mikey!

Hmmm. I pride myself on the spurning of Human fudz, but I suppose this is not 'zacklee Human fudz. I bet it might make a boy's furz all sleek and shiny too. I wonder if I should order the servants to get me some?

Unknown said...

aiiiieee!! where did you get that stuff??? I have to know!! I am just like Leo...I only like my canned food and I relish my little bits of my prescription kibble...I don't do nip, silver vine or any thing. The only treat I kind'a sort'a like are Friskies Party Mix: chicken, turkey and liver flavor...that's it

savannahspawtracks.com said...

just so's you know...those 'unknown' comments are from me, Savannah. Don't know why it is doing that???

Janet Blue said...

Leo, It sounds to us like MOM needs to start reading labels and finding things with coconut oil in them for you. You truly are deprived with all your dislikes. But you are not alone…some of us are also mighty particular about what we eat! Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Rene said...

Have you tried the unrefined coconut oil? It smells slightly of coconuts (it's so lovely).
